Callio is our new system of raising awareness regarding your child's attendance.  Below is the letter sent out to all parents/pupils.  Also click on the links below to gain further information regarding Callio.

Dear Parent/Carer


Brynmawr Foundation School would like to remind all parents of the importance of school attendance and our commitment to students. We ask all parents to set the highest of expectations for attendance for the term and year ahead.


Our target for your child is a minimum of 97% attendance this year!


Please see the chart below which illustrates the relationship between attendance and achievement at school.


The rewards for good attendance are clear. Pupils are more likely to enjoy school, achieve better results and increase life chances.


We will be updating you about your child’s attendance on a half-termly basis.


Not missing any lessons
Missing about 10 lessons
Missing about 20 lessons
Missing about 30 lessons
Missing about 8 days of school.  It will be difficult to catch up on lost learning from 40 lessons.
Missing about 2 weeks of school.  Time to ‘Callio’.
Missing 14 days of school.  This is almost 3 weeks which is a significant amount of education to lose.
92% and below
Missing more than 3 weeks of education.  A serious loss of learning which is likely to have a detrimental effect on achievement and life chances.


Yours sincerely




Mr J.Retallick
